French Band Phoenix Announces Tour Dates with a Stop in Tucson

Posted By on Tue, Feb 5, 2013 at 3:18 PM

Phoenix, the alternative rock band from Versailles, France, has just announced a tour that will make six stops in the U.S. Lucky for us, Tucson just happens to be one of them.

The tour leads up to the bands headlining slot at Coachella on April 13 and 20.

It will begin in Vancouver and end in Las Vegas just three days before their performance at the first weekend of Coachella.

The radius clause that Coachella has in place for the bands performing at the festival may be one of the reasons Phoenix is making two stops in Arizona along this short tour. The essence of this clause is that bands can't play shows in Southern California from the time they sign their contract with Coachella to 30 days after the festival concludes, according to the L.A. Times.

Whatever the cause, the band will be playing at AVA Amphitheater on April 9. Presale tickets will open for those who register for Phoenix Online on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 10 a.m. PST or 11 a.m. MST. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, Feb. 8 at the same time.
